The United States is ready to strike Syria's air force and suspected munition sites to blunt the regime's ability to fight off the various rebel groups fighting to bring down President Bashar al Assad.
Syria's air force bombed a rebel-held region near the border with Turkey for a second day Tuesday, killing at least one person and wounding three others, an official said.
The head of Syria's main opposition group in exile called Sunday for international powers to impose a no-fly zone in border areas to protect civilians who are coming under increasingly intense attacks by regime warplanes and helicopters.
